28th June 2021 – The Independent Thinking Children’s Book Festival
Over the weekend, The Sue Atkins Book Club ran their first online Children’s Book Festival. It was so wonderfully and cleverly put together by Ian Gilbert and Nina Jackson from Independent Thinking. They have worked tirelessly to interview around forty authors, many across the weekend as live interviews, and allow us all a platform to talk about our work.
All the authors within the group write to help with children’s mental, nutritional and physical wellbeing. There are books for teachers, books for parents and books for the children themselves. There is literally something for everyone! All the interviews will be available on YouTube over the coming days and are well worth a watch.
My interview (shown below) is a discussion about my title Love Will Never Die; Helping children through bereavement. The way in which Ian describes my book is amazing and made me feel extremely proud of what I have produced. Please take a moment to listen to our discussion and learn more about where the book came from and my desire to help bereaved children.
